A while ago I wrote about apple season, and how hard it was for me to get my favorite Jonathan apples (haven’t had one for years). I also mentioned in a comment on that post about how I used to also like Rome Beauty apples, but they seemed to be disappearing, too. I hadn’t eaten one or even seen one for decades. Well, today I went to the grocery store, and there it was, a Rome Beauty apple, though now, apparently, they just call them Rome apples.
But they are still beauties. And still a treat.
Even better, the produce manager said Jonathan apples appeared on his order form today. And perhaps he will have them on Monday.
I am so looking forward to treating myself to more apples. As they say, one good apple deserves another. Well, no. No one has ever said that but me, right now. Doesn’t make it any less true.
I am seventeen days late for National Apple Day in the USA (October 21), but have a Happy Apple Day anyway! I sure will.
